Yogurt is a product that does wonders not just for your skin, but your hair as well. It is a great source of probiotics and contains antioxidants and vitamins that will nurture and nourish your hair while also controlling the excess oil on your scalp. Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl to form a fine paste. Now apply it on your hair from the roots to the tip. Let it stay for half an hour before you wash it off.

Just let it sit for half an hour before washing it with your regular shampoo.
